Popular culture is an ever-changing reflection of how people see themselves and how others represent them. Our entertainment, popular trends, fads, fashions, and the “arts of the moment” allow us to observe how Canadians have lived and enjoyed themselves. Popular culture identifies our heroes and often reflects mainstream values and beliefs. It defines, and is defined by, what is important here and now. The images and other primary documents in this book capture exciting moments and trends in Canadian popular culture from 1900 to the beginning of the new millennium.
